Smoking Dreams

Eight and a half months in and feeling great, cigs never cross my mind these days and I feel like I have this well under my control.

This weekend I drove to and from Scotland on my own. This should have been a bit of a trigger for me but not at all. Not even getting stopped on the M62 for nearly 2 hours in traffic....I can honestly say I never even thought about cigs.

Then last night, bed early as very tired and slept well. BUT I dreamt of being in that traffic jam with loads of cigs and I chain smoked all the way home....it was awful. I could taste them (not nice) I could smell them (worse) and the ash got all over my lovely clean car and over me. My hair was stinking and so were my hands, nightmare.

It was such a relief to wake up and realise it was a dream but strange that smoking is still there in my subconsious.

Just shows you think its beat but cant let our guard down.

Happy Monday

    Well done! I was always worried about driving and smoking - especially driving by myself - but like you it doesn't bother me at all now.

    Don't you just HATE having those type of dreams. I've had a few and woken up feeling so depressed and out of sorts that I'm smoking again - but then I realise I'm not!

    But we can never let our guard down.
